Overview

Jazmine's deaf. And she's getting tired. Tired of having to try hard, tired of fitting in, tired of pretending to be like everyone else.

When Jaz goes to deaf camp, a new world opens up to her. But when you leave one world and enter another, what happens to the people you leave behind? Which world will Jaz live in? Can she keep a foot in both? How will she figure out the best way to be Jazmine?

Being Jazmine is the third book in Cecily Anne Paterson's Invisible series, featuring easy-to-love, hard-of-hearing teen Jazmine Crawford. The first book in the series, Invisible, was a semi-finalist in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award in 2014. The second, Invincible, was shortlisted in the Australian CALEB Prize in 2016.

Review
"Jazmine and her new friends are deaf but this is not a book about deafness. With a wonderful garden metaphor that resonates throughout the series, Being Jazmine offers believable characters and an unpredictable plot that would be perfect to add to any reading list. The series tackles teen relationships, mean girls, family secrets, fitting in, identity, and characters finding themselves."
